The liberal media has been reporting all week that Donald Trump will head into his inauguration with the “worst approval rating in 40 years”. The numbers come from a Washington Post poll that has been caught once again deceiving the public by oversampling Democrats.
From Liberty Writers News
“A total of 1,000 adults were interviewed by telephone nationwide by live interviewers calling both landline and cell phones. Among the entire sample, 32% described themselves as Democrats, 24% described themselves as Republicans, and 44% described themselves as independents or members of another party.”
An article in the extremely leftwing blog Politcususa claims,
“America is not giving Donald Trump a warm welcome to the White House as a new poll found that Trump’s job approval rating has dropped seven points to 37% over the past month.”
A 37% approval rating? The reason why that sounds unbelievable is because it isn’t true.
Trump’s actual approval rating has held at 50% or higher. The reputable Rasmussen poll found that Trump has a favorably rating of 51%. A Reuters poll had the same result, showing Trump’s favorably at 50%.
“A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 51% of Likely U.S. Voters have a favorable opinion of Trump, while 47% view him unfavorably. These findings include 29% with a Very Favorable opinion of the president-elect and 36% with a Very Unfavorable one.”
Keep in mind, Obama’s approval ratings have hovered around 50% or less throughout his presidency, nearly identical to what Trump’s rating is now. Reuters has President Obama’s approval rating at 52%, only one point higher than Trump.
There are also a few other key numbers that aren’t being reported. A Washington Post/ABC poll that even over-sampled Democrats shows:
- 61% of respondents said they expect Trump to do an excellent or good job handling the economy
- 59% said he’ll be excellent or good at creating jobs.
- 56% said they have high hopes for how Trump will tackle terrorism.
The fact is, the media will do ANYTHING to paint Donald Trump as a failure. They will hide all positive data and exaggerate the negative data. Don’t fall for it!
